Longtime police K-9 Mibo always was good at his job, Middlesex Township K-9 Officer Mark Heider said.

“He was automatic,” Heider said. “If I could teach him to drive and type, I would never have to show up for calls, he was that good. When we got there, he would know what to do and where to do it, he was that well-trained and versed and experienced.”

Mibo, who had been with Middlesex Township’s police department since 2015, died Aug. 14 of a “medical emergency,” according to the department.

A post on the department’s Facebook page described Mibo as “a great asset to the police department (and) to the community as well.”
